The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board decided to set up the meeting after a deputation from Coastal Pathway Group chairman Scott Babington last week. Mr Babington raised concerns about public access around the south side of the Mt Pleasant Yacht Club’s new boat shed, which is currently fenced off. Although larger than the previous shed, which was damaged in the February 2011 earthquake, the new building wasn’t publicly notified. This was because other buildings in the park, including the Mt Pleasant Bowling Club, were demolished and not rebuilt, community board member Tim Lindley told Bay Harbour News yesterday. Mr Babington said he was concerned the fenced off area didn’t have a pathway which would give access to public users. Yacht club committee member Tim Prickett said he didn’t think the boat shed or the fence impeded access for the public. The fence was to protect planting, “There are numerous ways you can get to the waterfront,” said Mr Prickett. The community board wants to develop a 10-year master plan for the park. Board chairwoman Sally Buck and members Darrell Latham and Mr Lindley will attend, along with other stakeholders and interested parties. Mr Lindley said it was “timely” to look at the future of the park. Neither Mr Babington nor Mr Prickett were aware of the meeting, but both said they would be keen to be involved. The meeting will be held in early September, date to be advised. •The boat shed will be officially opened on September 2, 10am.
